Davideo7 :

Sorry for the double post.

I'm just wondering if it would be possible for the reviews to be posted in a separate forum. Reviews from the past two days stretch as far as the end of the third page. It's good that activity is up, but it's burying other threads. Using a sub-forum doesn't really make a difference because there's no way to filter it out.

This sudden amount of threads might slow down after the initial week or two, but if it doesn't then it might be better off if the reviews were separated from the other RGR threads.

BNuge : His review title is just a space, not sure how he was able to do that but you should send him a warning not to do that.

4 pages worth of Threads/Reviews already! This feature overall was definitely worth all the time I put into it

This is a great feature, and I've written a few reviews using it. Too bad everyone else seems to abuse it with single sentence reviews that are about as informative as a soda-can label, providing no more information than "This game was great, I liked it." or "This game sucked, don't play it." And I think there are a few ways this problem can be solved.

One way is to have moderators approve all reviews before they are able to be viewed. This can solve the problem of too many short and uninformative reviews, AND it can solve the problem BNuge mentioned earlier about reviews clogging up the main page of the RGR forum.

Another way is to have a team of moderators read every review and make sure they follow the rules and guidelines; a job I'd be more than happy to take.

People are posting entire review threads just to say stuff that would be better suited for the comments section, and most likely because they think it's easy viz.

EmosewaRepus : Here's the current 2 solutions:
1. People gave bad ratings to small reviews which makes it so bad reviews show up at the very bottom (since reviews display in order of the rating users give the review)

2. Staff trash threads/reviews that are spammy.


Small reviews don't generate a lot of viz so it's not a good way to earn Viz.

Alright then, I understand. However until I'm able to click on any one of the threads in the RGR Reviews subforum and find thorough, informative reviews I'm afraid I can't consider Vizzed to be a reliable place for game reviews. But that's fine, there are thousands of other places like IGN or Game Informer.

EmosewaRepus : We do have staff reviews. We've had a few staff members who have had the single role of reviewing RGR games. There's about 50+ RGR games that have staff reviews currently and they're usually pretty good (games of the week always have a staff review).

You can see an example of a staff review I put together a while back here:

(the review is actually in the description area)

I'll definitely check that out. Thanks! Also... what if the same system could be used to review games that AREN'T on the RGR?

EmosewaRepus : Yeap, that's a future feature. I plan to eventually add a modern game room dedicated to modern day games (of course none would be playable but would still be fun and useful).

Do you think there could be a system for reviewing movies/products or anything else? If not, maybe a place where such reviews could go? I just got back from the movie "Water for Elephants" and I wanted to review it.

EmosewaRepus : There's a rented forum for that kind of stuff but they don't have their own pages like the RGR games.
